Oni: Light Control is a unique Windows Phone app that enables you to control lighting in your home, matching your current mood and more. Being able to control lighting remotely using your Windows Phone can create some cool effects. Available for some time, we've covered the app being updated numerous times in the past. Today we're looking at version 1.5, which brings a number of additions to the table, so let's jump right in.

Oni has published a new blog post covering the most recent update to the company's Windows Phone app. Should you not be aware of what Oni: Light Control is all about, we last looked at the app back in February. It's a solution for those of us who happen to have Philips Hue bulbs installed throughout the home. Think home lighting, but more fun.

The rather expensive lighting equipment supports a variety of colours and is wireless enabled, making it easy to control the output using a smartphone. This is where Oni (www.oni.io) and its Light Control Windows Phone comes in. Unfortunately, the Philips bulbs are rather expensive, so this is only suited for those who can afford to throw money at the home.

Oni (www.oni.io) is an interesting company, which is developing an app for Windows Phone for those of us who happen to have Philips Hue bulbs installed throughout the home. The rather expensive lighting equipment supports a variety of colours and is wireless enabled, making it easy to control the output using an iOS device.

We were pleased to see a solution for Windows Phone be made available to help expand functionality and use beyond the Apple ecosystem. Now we've learned that Oni has released an update for its Light Control app. So what's new in version 1.2? NFC support and new languages (German is highlighted) to name but a few.

Before the holidays, Philips brought a new technology to market for those with disposable incomes and a knackering for ambient lighting. The Hue concept is simple (and reminds us of Philip’s earlier attempts at lighting for TVs): the bulbs have variable range of color support via LEDs and they’re network enabled, allowing you control the light level and color via your iPhone.

Sure, a set of three bulbs will set you back $280 (Amazon.com) but the effect is quite impressive, especially with the iOS support coming native to the system. But that’s just the problem as those on other platforms were left in the cold.
